Grate the cucumber and sprinkle ½ tsp salt on it. Let it sit for 10-15 minutes, this helps remove excess water.
Squeeze the grated cucumber to remove additional water.
Place the drained cucumber, yogurt, minced garlic, lemon juice and olive oil in a medium sized bowl. Add a pinch/dash of salt and pepper to your liking. Mix well.
Cover and refrigerate, until ready to eat.
